Life is busy. So, so busy! But no matter how busy it gets, one priority in our home is to have dinner together (just about) every night. It can be a challenge some days. There’s a lot to do and there are days that by the time I get home from work the last thing I really want to do is cook. But that time together is important, and I have a growing almost four year old. So I just make it happen.
Cooking from scratch is important. I like having the control over what goods into our food and, well, homemade always tastes better. When I come across products that allow me to serve meals I love but add convenience, well, that is win win!
Have you seen the new Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia yet? It’s the Kraft shredded cheese that you already know and love with a little bonus – a touch of Philadelphia that adds a creamy, melty touch to make your favorite cheese dishes even better.
The new Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia comes in three varieties:
- Creamy Mozza
- Creamy Herb & Garlic
- Creamy Mexicana
Yesterday I picked up a package of the Kraft Creamy Mexicana Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia and decided to slightly revamp an old family favorite. I’ve been making this Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole for years but I decided to change it up just a bit. First, replacing regular cheddar cheese with the Creamy Mexicana to make it extra creamy and adding a few extra ingredients to carry through the Mexican theme (and to indulge my little one’s new fondness for peppers). The results were awesome!
The Kraft Creamy Mexicana Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia took this already delicious dish to a new level. This dish is so easy to make and is a creamy, melt in your mouth experience that the whole family loves. It is a great dinner dish but also is a favorite addition to brunch! Plus the cheese is so eas and quick to cook with!
